But, most of the time, they will put a low price on their paper like 30$ even if you didnt ask them

I'm from Canada (ON) and i asked them to "mark the package as gift and low value" but i didn't really get a response saying specifically "yes we'll mark package low, etc".
Let's hope they put the value as $30! I've been hurt by UPS before and i'm afraid that might happen again.

The worst thing to happen, and I'm pretty confident that it wont happen, is if they will put a value like 80-100$ and you will pay federal tax of 5% and whatever taxes you have in ON (pretty sure its lower then Québec rolleyes.gif ) and others fees for custom. But don't worry, i'm pretty sure they put a 40-60$ mark. And i'm pretty sure UPS dont have the time to look at your package (which is cover by a proctective ''paper'') and say "hmm...that thing dont seem to worth 40$, let's investigate'' They will deliver the package, ask for your signature perharps and thats it, IMO

Or just open it up and test all the stuff that didn't work before with a room fan blowing on it, or something so you don't have to attach anything to the board until you verify cooling some does help.

Yeah that would be a logical first step. That or little fans on the exterior vents that you could remove later so you don't even have to open it. At any rate, I'd just like to see if cooling the components inside helps with overclocking these panels.

I got my first artifact today, just 3 yellow lines across the top of my screen for a single frame while gaming. I'm only running at 96hz and not the 130 that I was running up until 2 days ago when I pulled my 680 out for RMA. I also happen to be sick, so my window is closed and it's a lot warmer in my room than it would normally be.

I doubt it's a coincidence that my first overclocking issue (albeit an incredibly minor one) would happen on the same day that my room is hotter than it normally is, despite having a significantly less demanding overclock.

I'd stick a box fan behind my screen and find out myself, but since I've still only gotten the one brief single frame artifact, I wouldn't really be a very good test candidate. Especially since for all I know, it was a GPU artifact (since I'm running a GPU that is normally dedicated to physx).

Hopefully someone who consistently has artifacts or scan lines that they can certainly attribute to the monitor itself can give it a try! If $5 worth of small heatsinks and thermal tape can help people get significantly better/more stable overclocks, that would be fantastic (even if my personal panel doesn't seem to need it).

Found the image in lower-res, if you want to play around with some google searching (images.google.com -> click the little camera icon inside the search bar -> paste the URL of the picture/upload one from your computer -> ??? -> Profit):

And here is what looks like the author of this picture's deviantart, I browsed through 3 pages in his gallery, there are some amazing looking ones in the same style, but couldn't find the exact one. I'm sure you'll find it if you look through it smile.gif

Wow, thanks. I did try google image search, but just briefly, and when I didn't see a high res match right away, I just gave up.

Do all these models overclock - or is it like the Catleap and only a specific batch of these monitors can be overclocked?

Also, has anyone done an SMTT2 lag test on these yet?

I'm considering 3 of THESE in a portrait nvidia surround setup for sim racing.
